What Option is Best for Cleaning My Clogged Drain?

That’s a fair question. From hair to grease, soap scum to food chunks – we’ve seen it all and conquered it all. Some of it, you might be able to handle yourself. And some of it is best left to the professionals.
So how do you know which is which, and keep from making a big mess out of your house?

When Should You Call a Professional?

Clogged drains aren’t always simple. That’s why you call a pro.

When you call us, the first thing our plumbing pros will do is figure out what’s going on with your pipes.

We use purpose-built tools – like drain cameras – to peek inside your pipes and pinpoint the problem.

This detective work we do helps us plan the right strategy for resolving your nasty drain problems.

That strategy often requires more purpose-built tools like motorized drain augers, (also known as snakes), or hydro-jets to blast away the gunk inside your pipes.

If things get really tricky, we might need to use The Rooter. It’s a heavy- duty plumbing tool that is able to slice through tree roots and other tough stuff causing blockages in your pipes.

This mega-cleaning clears out the root of the problem, (sorry – we couldn’t resist) – and slams the door shut on future related issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Most Common Causes of Clogged Drains
Hair: Strands of hair tangle together to form a blockage that water can’t sneak through. Until the hair is removed, you’re stuck with drainage problems. 
Grease: When it’s still hot, grease can be smooth going down. But once it cools, it turns into a stubborn clog creator.
Soap Scum: Strange as it may seem, soap – and the minerals it dissolves – team up inside your pipes to create a scummy sludge that slows things down. Food: Leftover bits in the kitchen join forces, creating a blockade in your pipes.
Foreign Objects: Sometimes, things end up down the drain that just shouldn’t be there. If it can end up in a drain or in a pipe, we’ve seen it and fixed it.

How do you know when it’s time to call a professional plumber for a clogged drain?

Calling a professional plumber is a good idea when DIY methods don’t work, or if you notice recurring clogs. Signs like slow drainage, unpleasant odors, or strange noises can also indicate a more significant issue. Our team of professional plumbers have the expertise to address complex problems and prevent potential damage.

If you’re unsure, it’s better to consult a pro.

Do Drain Cleaners (Drain Cleaning Solvents) Damage Water Pipes?

We get this question a lot.

Many of the over the counter “drain cleaners” you can buy at the hardware store are harsh, toxic chemical solvents that create as many problems as the solve.

Yes, they can damage your pipes.

There is a better, safer, and organic treatment for your clogged drains. We use options such as enzymatic cleaners and other natural solutions.

These are easier on your pipes and easier on our environment as well.

What Are Enzymatic Drain Cleaners? 

Enzymatic drain cleaners are biological products designed to break down organic matter in drains.

They often aren’t enough to clear your drain by themself, but using enzymatic drain cleaners periodically is a great way to keep your sewer line clear of organic buildup.

They contain specific enzymes that digest and dissolve things like hair, soap scum, and food particles, helping to clear clogs. They are often seen as a more eco-friendly and less harsh alternative to chemical drain cleaners.

However, they work best on organic materials. They aren’t as effective for mineral build-up.

What If Drain Cleaning Doesn’t Fix the Problem

Sometimes, old pipes get too worn out, too corroded, or perhaps even too damaged for professional drain cleaning to fix the problem.

We’ve seen all kinds of things get stuck in drain pipes, things that make it impossible for them to be cleaned out.

In those extreme cases, we can still get your water flowing. When drain cleaning won’t solve your sewer problem, pipe lining is a good solution.
